Abstract : We welcome the comment by Michard et al. (2013) as it gives us the opportunity to better discuss the Jurassic–Cretaceous magmatism of the High Atlas (Morocco). In their comment, Michard et al. (2013) focus on three main points which are: (i) the age of the basalts from Naour, (ii) the structural history of the Central High Atlas and (iii) the geodynamic significance of the related Jurassic–Cretaceous magmatism. We will address these questions in the following sections.
